California Employment Law
Have California Employment Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer.
Good morning. I'm sorry for your loss of a child.
A miscarriage caused by your work is an injury covered by workers' compensation benefits. You can file a claim with the Division of Workers' Compensation (DWC), if you have lost any wages or medical needs as a result of your injury.
You can also contact the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), and ask for an investigation of possible unlawful pregnancy discrimination against you.
You can also contact a private employment rights lawyer to negotiate a settlement on your behalf.
You have rights, and threats against you by your employer/boss for irrelevant reasons, such as those you describe, are discriminatory and unlawful.
